Dobra Red-Carded For Albania U21s
Tuesday, 7th Jun 2022 22:13
Blues forward Armando Dobra was sent off for two bookable offences as Albania’s U21s were beaten 3-0 by their England counterparts at Chesterfield’s Technique Stadium.
The 21-year-old, who was winning his 11th U21s cap, picked up both his cards for fouls on Everton’s Anthony Gordon, the first on 47 and the second with 11 minutes left on the clock.
Dobra, who recently spent time training with the senior Albania squad having caught the eye of manager Edoardo Reja, will now miss next Monday’s game against Kosovo in Elbasan.
The forward, who spent a frustrating spell on loan at Colchester during 2021/22, is contracted to the Blues to the summer of 2023 with the club having an option for a further season.
Meanwhile, young Town keeper Lewis Ridd started and won his sixth Wales U18s cap as his side beat hosts Croatia 4-2 in their opening game at a friendly tournament this afternoon.
The 17-year-old and his team-mates subsequently take on England on Friday and Austria next Monday.
Ridd, who spent time on loan at AFC Sudbury and Bury Town in 2021/22, is among the second-year scholars to have been offered professional terms by the Blues.

So another season of high hopes and expectations has begun. We always say ‘something’ feels different as we go into a new season.
McKenna's Marvellous Hybrid Formation by DanLyles
“I don’t speak to players a lot about 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 and think it’s about them understanding their roles and responsibilities on the pitch, as well as the spaces we want to attack and where to defend.”
The Cashless Debate by ThatMuhrenCross
Ipswich Town Football Club's decision to move towards a "cashless" Portman Road next season has proved to be a more controversial topic than first expected, not only on the TWTD Forum and comments section, but also across social media and in conversations between fans.
